The Knicks played a 6 ½ minute tribute video to Oklahoma City forward Carmelo Anthony in his return to Madison Square Garden.
As ceremonious as it was for the former Knick to be back at Madison Square Garden, his play didn’t measure equally. Anthony was held to 12 points on 5-of-18 shooting and went scoreless in the second half.
The Knicks, who were without an injured Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway, Jr. beat the visiting Thunder 111-96.
As for the video tribute to Anthony, it was unveiled after the first four players in the Thunders’ starting lineup were introduced.
Anthony who was introduced last got a chance to watch while sitting on the bench in his hooded Thunder warm up jacket. After the montage, the Knicks’ public address announcer said his name as if he was still a member of the Knicks. Many cheered for Anthony with some booing him.
